There are a million types of robots available for the holidays!  My son has decided robots are fun!   Last year we got the Meccanoid robot.  It took us two days to put it together.  - Ours is the one that is the same size as my eight year old.  Now there are a lot of other meccanoids, but also a lot of other type of robots.

My son has decided he wants the Cozmo for this year. I usually like the Wow wee robots, so I can't wait to see how the Cozmo does.  Shopping at Target recently I did see the Mebo robot with the manipulating arm.  It looked really cool!  The robots and drones are now getting more and more features and really cool to play with!
